Film Dropped From Cannes Festival

Cannes Film Festival organizes have nixed the showing of the movie The Antisemite, an offering from the Iranian Documetary and Experimental Film Center, during the Cannes film market, because its content might lead to a public disturbance. The film depicts a character who, dressed as a Nazi officer, "pokes fun" at the Auschwitz death camp. The movie is scheduled to be distributed over the Internet.

More here from the Hollywood Reporter and here from the New York Times.
